Michael Mirolla's poetic world is one where a mirror - or any simple reflective item - is tilted ever so slightly, providing an opening to places we would never have imagined existed. (One of them is his own birth, from the inside, looking reluctantly out.) The poet is a metaphysical detective, finding the cracks and gashes that open into other worlds. Uncomfortable in the here and now, he would rather spend time in the past/future, or on the edge of that mirror. Luckily for us, shaped by his reflective, polished imagery, all those worlds are fascinating places to visit, doing a brief meet-and-greet with his myriad ghosts. -- Lindsay Brown
time is ... an old salmon fighting/ the dotage of tides and moon-fickle waters/ time is ... the hermaphrodite's corpse/ never desecrated by fables/ of eternity in damp museums
